Early Bird

On Sunday, my little brood and I went to my great-aunt's house for an early Thanksgiving family celebration. It was a good way to break the self seclusion we've been in since arriving in St. Mary's

These are people that I've not seen in sixteen years, yet they've been wonderfully respectful of our need for privacy. It's been something that I've appreciated greatly, but it would be rude (and slightly batty of me) to stay in hiding forever. So we picked the holidays to make our intro.

They were all happy to see us and instantly made me feel as if I've never been away. We ate well and laughed much. It was a good time and I'm so glad we went.

Love is a healing salve.
